Tottenham star talks up Jose Mourinho ahead of Man United trip
Jan Vertonghen has his say on Jose Mourinho ahead of Tottenham's trip to Manchester United on Sunday
Jan Vertonghen has admitted that he is a fan of Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Old Trafford on Sunday.
Spurs are preparing to take on Mourinho’s men at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon as they look to build on their impressive 5-0 win over Swansea last weekend.
It has been something of a mixed start to life at Old Trafford for Mourinho since his appointment as the club’s new manager in the summer.
The Red Devils have struggled to find consistent form in the Premier League and have only won two of their last 10 games in the top flight.
Tottenham will be looking to continue Manchester United’s stuttering form in the top flight this weekend.
And Belgian defender Vertonghen has given his verdict on the Red Devils boss ahead of the showdown at Old Trafford.
Vertonghen is quoted as saying by The Daily Express: “He is a great coach first of all, and he has done great things with different teams.
“He has shown he is a very good coach and a colourful character – but football needs that.
“He is a good manager and he says things in the media. Does that wind me up? Not really.
“It’s part of the job and he plays it the way he wants to.”
